Armenian parliament starts discussing Garegin Baghramian`s candidacy  for PSRC chairman

ArmInfo. On April 18, the National Assembly of Armenia launched discussions on the candidacy of Garegin Baghramian for the position of chairman of the Public  Services Regulatory Commission. Baghramyan's candidacy was presented  by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

As the candidate noted in his speech, the sphere of public regulation  is sensitive and of strategic importance for the country. On the one  hand, Garegin Baghramyan continued, the regulator should take into  account the interests of millions of consumers, and on the other  hand, do not discount the protection of investors' rights. The  challenges facing the sphere are also constantly changing, demanding  new approaches and solutions. According to the standards of the  European Union, countries should form such independent regulatory  structures that should be completely independent in their activities.  This standard is also fixed in the RA Constitution. The Commission,  cooperating with all interested structures, should focus on the  balanced approaches and decisions with respect to consumers and  investors. One of the most important tasks of the PSRC will be to  increase its independence, especially when making decisions,  including on tariffs, the formation of which is a complex process. If  the state sells inefficiently to the company, it concludes interstate  and intergovernmental agreements, for example, on gas issues, thus,  the possibilities for making PSRC decisions are limited.
